democratic leader nancy pelosi says she won't budge when it comes to tax hikes for the wealthy, putting her directly at odds with house speaker john boehner. >> could you accept a deal that does not include tax rate increases for the wealthy? we've seen talk about a possible compromise that could leave rates the same but cap deductions for high-income earners. is that something that's acceptable? >> no. >> not at all no, way? >> no. the preponderance made it very clear in his campaign that there are not enough -- what you just described is a formula and a blueprint for hampering our future. you cannot go forward -- you have to cut some investments. if you cut too many you are hampering growth, you're hampering education, investments for the future. >> and even thousands of miles away it appears president obama is still focused on those negotiations. while touring a royal monastery with secretary of state clinton in thailand the president was overheard mentioning the budget talks to a monk. the president later clarified his comments -- >> he's not any monk. >> no. >> he has some big i vestme
's a mandate here? >> i don't. because then they would have put nancy pelosi in charge of the house of representatives. see, i think these ideas that we talked about, i think they're popular ideas. this is a very close election. >> despite a scoreboard of 332 to 206, congressman paul ryan refuses to admit that president obama might have a mandate to push his agenda, a big part of which includes raising taxes on high earners. this week the president is holding court with ally and opponents to discuss the upcoming fiscal cliff. yesterday, at a meeting with progressive leaders the president said he would not give in to republican demands to extend all of the bush tax cuts. today he will meet with business leaders. the discussions underscore the president's opposing constituencies, but according to new york magazine's jonathan chaits the president has to do what he want -- joining us now from washington, "new york" magazine columnist by god jonathan chait. hello, my friend. >> thank you. >> jonathan, so the president met with progressive leaders yesterday and i think gave them some welc
. now a new call for answers from susan rice herself. negotiating fiscal cliff. did nancy pelosi just draw a red line? today she's saying she won't sign off on any deal that does not increase taxes on the rich. >>> and president obama is dealing with all of this while in the midst of his trip through asia, including israel and gaza on the brink of war. >> we're going to have to see what kind of progress we can make in the next 24-36-48 hours. if we're serious about wantsing to resolve this situation and a create a genuine peace process it starts with no more missiles being fired into israel's territory. >> first off, we're in a developing story in the middle east. let's go now to stephanie gosk, who is in tel aviv with the latest. what's the tone on ground today? >> well you hear the president say that as long as rockets were dropping, it was going to be impossible to get a cease-fire here. and the rockets definitely keep on coming. and there have been attacks back and forth. a couple of volleys of rockets that came toward tel aviv. intercepted by the israeli missile defense system, i
nancy pelosi joins a briefing with members of the upcoming 113th congress. we'll bring it live to you at noon eastern on c-span3. >> now, now, from cq roll call's election impact conference, a discussion on the new conference. roll call staffers talk about the newly-elected members, what leadership will look like for both parties and committee assignments. this is an hour. >> i'll start chatting while my colleagues come up to join us. the next panel, for those of you who are veterans of this conference, for some years tom and norm do the next bit, but we thought we'd mix it up this time because we have two people who are eminently qualified to talk about the new membership of congress and the new power structure in congress. on my right, jason dick who is the house editor at roll call, and to his right emily pierce who is the senate editor at roll call. so who better to discuss the structure in a congress that will be more demographically diverse than ever before. as your guide reminds you, after two consecutive congresses in which the female population of both the house and senate wa
senators harry reid and nancy pelosi have opposed that idea in the past. he says the president can get them to budge. >> yeah, the president essentially wants what he calls balance. either you increase revenue or you, you know, decrease the spending or you try to find some type of balance. when he gets into these democratic side, they don't want programs to be cut on the backs of, let's say, the recipients, middle class recipients. here's nancy pelosi and how she explains that. >> whatever adjustments would be made in social security should be there to strengthen social security, not to subsidize a tax cut for the wealthiest people in america and say that's how we balance the budget. the same thing with medicaid and medicare. again, we have said we support a grand bargain. >> grand bargain. so right now, i think you'd have to say the democrats feel that after the election, they have some type of mandate. the republicans obviously don't agree, but the democrats want to strike while the iron is hot. the president certainly wants to come to a deal as quickly as possible. time really is running
us about the future of house minority leader nancy pelosi because she's made some comments this morning, i believe. >> she is planning to tell all of us what her future is tomorrow morning. nan nancy pelosi has been the leader of democrats in the house. she was the first woman speaker, and there was some questions of whether she would stay on in a leadership position in the new congress because she had not been able to win as many democratic seats as they had hoped even though she raised a lot of money and did a lot of work for candidates. so that question was there, should the democrats have a new leader? perhaps steny hower, perhaps jim clyburn, what we don't know is what her final decision is. tonight there's a whole series of meetings and get-togethers as members come back and she will make it known tomorrow. that's something to stay tuned for. >> any hint of what she's going to say? >> i would say her posture coming back, she certainly looks confident and engaged. that might lead me to think she wants to stay in power, but we don't know for certain. >> absolutely. nbc'

as opposed to the senate, do you hear anything nancy pelosi is going to have a news conference, a press conference, later today? what do you think she's going to do? any word? >> i have no idea. no idea. >> thank you for your honesty. go get me a cup of coffee. >> did you watch this program yesterday? debbie wassermann schultz said she's staying. most of the people i talk to say she's staying. i think her body language yesterday when she was sparring with the press a little bit suggest she's staying. and if we're wrong, i won't be here tomorrow. >> let's go back to congressman ryan and his comments. the interesting thing that president obama did yesterday, he's been, you know, criticized -- was criticized a lot from a lot of different angles in the first four years of his time in office. but one of the things that the left and some in the center criticized him for was constantly negotiating against himself, that he was not a tactical negotiator. yesterday was as much as anything an announcement. he's not going to get the tax increases that he wants. that number. but he's not coming in -
's a mandate here? >> i don't because then they would have put nancy pelosi in charge of the house of representatives. see, i think these ideas that we talked about, i think they're popular ideas. this is a very close election. and unfortunately, divided government didn't work very well the last two years. we're going to have to make sure it works in the next two years. that means, i think, that both parties have to talk to each other. >> but could you see yourself supporting a plan that raises tax rates? >> i'm not for raising tax rates. >> so you won't support a plan? >> i don't want to get into negotiating with the media, but i do not support raising tax rates. >> period. >> yeah, i've been saying that my entire career. >> the fiscal cliff. i mean, there are people -- you read them, you hear them, say, you know, let us go off the fiscal cliff. that might be one way to really resolve the situation. what happens if we go off the fiscal cliff? what is the fiscal cliff? >> well -- >> i can't even balance a checking account. what is it? >> it's actually more like 2 1/2 cliffs because

time since last week's elections. nancy pelosi holds a news conference with a newly elected democratic members of the 130th congress. senate leaders talk about the upcoming negotiations over the so-called fiscal cliff. that is followed by more on the potential tax hikes and spending .an hollen va = = we held a briefing with newly elected democrats. patrick murphy who defeated alan webb spoke to the new members who take office early next year when the 130 congress convenes. this is 20 minutes. >> at length of time it took for our new members to come onto the platform here is music to my ears into your ears as well. they say that a picture is worth 1000 words. the picture that you see before you is worth millions of votes. millions of aspirations of the american people. problem solvers to come to washington to get the job done. today we welcome our democratic freshmen to washington. they are extraordinary leaders who will make our house democratic caucus the first in history to have a majority of women and minorities in the caucus. you can applaud that. before you you see a broad coaliti
question. >> all right. a lot of questions about nancy pelosi and whether she will continue on as your leader. will she or won't she? >> you know, i think that's probably the hottest question in the capitol right now. but personally if you ask me, i would be shocked if she left. you know, would really surprise me if she stepped aside. nancy pelosi is someone who absolutely loves to be part of the architecture of big major decisions, the big issues. we wouldn't have health care reform without barack obama and nancy pelosi. and with the fiscal cliff issues and the big economic decisions we're going to be making it would be hard for me to imagine she walks away. plus, you know, we had a successful election and we've got a job to finish. so just knowing her, that's my gut feeling. >> did you guys have a successful election? because -- >> you mean in the house? >> yeah, obviously the president won big, the senate won big, but the republicans are still in charge of the house. >> yeah, they are. but, look, i think if you look at -- if this election were not right after redistricting, and if y
on this topic, they'll get plenty of help from our side. >> there's been talk about nancy pelosi and the speculation that she's going to step down as minority leader. have you heard anything about that and what are your thoughts about that? you're returning to work tomorrow. >> well, i got in trouble two years ago when i was asked that question because i really didn't at that time think that then speaker pelosi was going to want to be minority leader. if he wants to be minority leader, she will have that job as long as she wants it. she's been a tireless worker for the party. if she decides to step down, i think actually the leadership pieces will fall into place pretty quickly without contention in the democratic caucus and we'll have a very, very strong leadership contingent going forward in this congress. but right now, she hasn't laid her cards on the table. i assume we'll learn more later this week. >> i think that was a really good answer. i don't think you can get in trouble from that. you did a great job. congressman, thank you for your time. >> thanks, thomas. >>> florid
by a full house vote. there was some buzz about whether nancy pelosi would continue on as the top house democrat, which she told us today. >> my colleagues made it very clear and in fact i think they must have coordinated with each other because their message was clear, don't even think of leaving. >> if the next congress is anything like this congress, you can expect plenty of boehner vs. pelosi battle, shep. >> shepard: mike emanuel at the retundra, thanks. now the storm aftermath. the long road to recovery continues after historic storm sandy. we have details now on the legal battle over the power outages that have lasted more than two weeks in some cases. plus, you will hear a top u.s. official threaten to punch out a reporter. you will probably like this. they've been committed to putting clients first. helping generations through tough times. good times. never taking a bailout. there when you need them. helping millions of americans over the centuries. the strength of a global financial leader. the heart of a one-to-one relationship. together for your future. ♪ >> shepard: the f
't happen. >> i think i saw john boehner and nancy pelosi sharing a rootbeer float out of the same straw at johnny half shell. it's the dawn of a new era. i'm positive about it. >> a lot of important things happened this week. i wasn't totally shocked by any of them, even though the pets russ scandal was a bit surprising. the thing that shocked me the most was, i went to see "lincoln" and it sucked, it was terrible. it wasn't really about the soul of the country as i was led to believe it was going to be, and daniel day-lewis is incredible, he will be in the best actor oscar race but the film -- i want those 2 1/2 hours back. >> toure, we did like another movie though. >> "argo." >> i saw it. >> three thumbs up from "the cycle crew cycle" crew, krystal hasn't seen it yet. >> we were concerned that after the election we would have nothing to talk about, and that's not been a problem. i mean, even on oyour crazy lon list, romney thrusting himself back into the spotlight, even boehner and obama shared a light-hearted tomorrow. >> tomorrow is speaker boehner's birthday. for those who want to
at this and moving on it. but with now 45 days to go, you know, i think the minority leader nancy pelosi's goal of christmas is a good one. it's probably also realistic that it won't happen before then. >> what about to both of you, if, if we get the money, say we get this trillion dollars one way or another, is there a guarantee, nancy, to you first, that, that this goes to reducing the deficit? i mean, do we have that guarantee? is there any way it could be spent? >> well, i feel like the president has talked about spending some of that before on infrastructure projects, and the idea of creating jobs. but i do think that the bulk of it will go towards reducing the deficit. that's something that both parties agree really has to be tackled. and the problem is that if they don't tackle it now they'll have to tackle it down the road. so i think that this will be -- this is one of the few shared goals that they do have, taking that money to reduce it. >> you agree, ed? >> yeah, absolutely. i think you mention infrastructure. i mean, that is one possible spending program or stimulus-like proposal t
cliff issue. we have new comments from nancy pelosi on the fiscal cliff today. let's listen to that. >> would you accept a deal that does not include tax rate increases for the wealthy. we have seen a possible compromise that would leave rates the same but cap deductions for top earners? >> no. the president made it clear there are not enough -- what you described is a formula and a blueprint for hampering our future. >> what do you think? does this mean a deal will not get done? >> i think there is desire on both sides to get a deal done. that doesn't mean we will see one. both sides are taken the election to mean that the american people want action. the president has taken it to mean the american people endorsed his so-called balanced approach to balancing the budget. and we saw spirited koopg with the leaders coming out after the meetening a now they mr. get down to the details where to make cuts and revenue increases and can do you do it by just closing loopholes, is that enough or do you have to talk about tax rates in particular think tax rating for the wealthy. that's is whe
, minority leader nancy pelosi and senate majority leader harry reid and minority leader mitch mcconnell. they fell short of a debt deal last year. with the election out of the way and democrats controlling the white house and senate republicans say they're willing to compromise, to a point. >> the pathway to move forward as the speaker said is mr. president, lead us now but let's not get into this notion that the only way that we can do this is by raising taxes on producers and it's not helpful. it document close the budget gap. >> so here are the opening positions. democrats want rates increased. republicans are willing to discuss curbs to deductions and want an overall -- overhaul of the tax system. a process likely to hit full stride next year. they could create an incentive for congress to finish the work like penalty or sequester for each side if they don't finish. sound familiar? update from charlie gasparino who will be at the white house business leaders meeting on wednesday. david ", hon well-ceo, no -- david hon kote from honeywell. tracy: sequester doesn't work. dock t
of the year. house minority leader nancy pelosi is digging in her heels. >> i don't think it would be a good idea for the republicans to hold middle income tax cuts hostage to tax cuts to the wealthy. we have a deficit that we have to deal with. we have to do it with growth and creation of jobs. we have to do it with cuts, we all know that but we also have to do it with revenue on the table. gregg: in just a few minutes we're going to be talking with one of the republicans that leader pelosi will need to work with in the house of representatives, ways and means committee member peter roskam will be joining us live. martha: we're just getting started here on this monday morning and we're glad to have you with us. we have a brand new report today about the effort to preserve a sacred memorial for veterans deep in the california dessert after vandalism and years of court fights. gregg: plus breaking developments in the middle east. israel firing on syria this morning. we'll have a live report from the israeli-syrian border just ahead. martha: also a massive explosion in a quiet suburb kills two
striking this deal? what about nancy pelosi, harry reid, mitch mcconnell? in 2011 it was basically boehner and obama, this time there might be a few more lawmakers who want in on this deal. jenna: the president's going to be sitting down with leaders later on this week. let's talk about style versus substance, something we talked about a lot with the election. i was reading comments from the ceo of at&t today, also the senior economist from bank of america who say, listen, if they'd reach an agreement, great. but if between now and then and the disagreements look really big and bad, that's going to damage this economy because it just shatters any consumer confidence going into the holiday season. >> yes. jenna: so, ultimately, they could find a solution, but damage will already be done. what dueck about that, bob? what do you think about the style to all this as well? >> that's why -- and i agree with that, they're going to need a deal by mid december because it's going to shatter consumer confidence, and the stock market's going to play a big role here. we saw that in the bailout in 2008
thing to put the guy at the very top to answer those questions. tell us about nancy pelosi and what her future holds. >> very interesting morning. if not for this scandal, that would really be all the talk, the buzz, leading up to today around the water cooler here on capitol hill. will she or won't she stay? she, of course, did decide she was going to stay for at least another two years as leader of the house democrats, and the image you see there on this screen, the imagery was kind of remarkable, suzanne. certainly we know and we have known that she has taken pride in the fact that she has -- is the highest ranking woman in history. she was the first female speaker of the house of representatives, but the imagery today of her surrounded by so many women, democratic women, obviously, in the house, currently serving newly elected women, really had not heard her hit that issue as hard as she did today, and, in fact, at one point when asked about why she wanted to stay, she sort of made a joke about the fact that if she didn't, that there would be four men around the table negotiating an

connell and house speaker john boehner and nancy pelosi. they're all going to try to make some progress in coming to an agreement in how to increase revenue and decrease spending before the tax cuts expire for everyone and pre-determined spending cuts kick in automatically. the president said he's willing to compromise but not if it means protecting the top 2% from paying their fair share.

revenue is on the table. which means in order for it to pass, nancy pelosi has to come over and knock on your door. what are your red lines on this? >> i suppose i'll have a number of red lines. number one, not a nickel in reductions and cost of living increases, social security, not a nickel in reductions to benefits to medicare and medicaid. those are probably the most primary red lines. then i would want to see -- >> that's interesting. >> i would want to see -- where you draw the red line, i don't know. i don't want to see more cuts in discretionary spending, i don't want to see increases to the military. i don't want to see revenue -- revenues, so-called, that will impact the middle class, like eliminating state and local taxes. that's a very important one. some of the proposals that are on the table now, they came from romney. they came from democrats saying great idea. let's cap deductions at 35,000 or $40,000. that will, in a high tax rate like you are, that will really almost eliminate to a large extent, deductibility, state and local taxes. which, in turn, will put more pres
